Reduce downtimes and save costs with maintenance-free igubal polymer spherical bearings

Did you know that our lubrication-free igus spherical balls can save you up to 40% costs while increasing the service life of your applications by up to 8 times?

Heavy dirt accumulation, dust and swarf are common for pillow blocks and fixed flange bearings. Constant lubrication and maintenance is therefore necessary. With the injection-moulded igus spherical balls, you can resort to a lubrication-free and maintenance-free solution for their metallic pillow blocks.

igus has now developed new spherical balls made of the high-performance plastic iglidur J, specifically for cost-effective sheet metal housings. These can be mounted in seconds. Contact us to get your free sample box.
Kind regards,

The lubrication-free and cost-effective solution: igubal spherical balls made of maintenance-free high-performance plastics in low-cost sheet metal housings replace metal bearings.
New LAPP solutions for mechanical and plant engineering
When cables are installed outdoors, they should also be UV-resistant. Treotham now has four more LAPP PVC cables for data and signal transmission in the low-frequency range with a black outer sheath (BK) in its portfolio. This makes them suitable for outdoor use in accordance with DIN EN ISO 4892-2. For example, the classic data and signal transmission cable is available in black, the UNITRONIC® LiYY BK. The compact design enables small outer diameters despite the high number of cores. The classified fire behaviour properties are defined in accordance with EU Directive 305/2011 (BauPVO/CPR).

Thomson celebrates 75 years of innovation
Thomson Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of linear motion control solutions, celebrates its 75th anniversary this year. What began as John B. Thomson Sr.’s wartime government project to reduce friction in the motion of airplane propellers ultimately led to 75 years of linear motion innovation and countless solutions provided across a wide range of industries. Given the expanding use of automation in the world economy and the company’s sustained focus on innovation, Thomson has grown exponentially in both size and technical capability over the years. It is now one of the most trusted motion control brands in the world. Read more
C6 e-chain: New design for cleanrooms of the highest class
High abrasion resistance is crucial for machine elements in cleanrooms. igus has therefore now developed the C6, an energy chain designed to meet the highest cleanroom class. The new chain is specially designed for longer unsupported applications on machines and systems, and is based on the successful E6 and E6.1 cleanroom series. A new connector system and a specially tribologically optimised high-performance polymer make the design study from igus even smoother, easier to assemble and virtually free of any particles in motion.

70 A finger-proof male crimp contacts from ILME
Treotham enriches its crimp contacts series with the new finger-proof ILME CX7MA..P, specifically designed to eliminate potential high-voltage hazards when handling connectors still under load or energised. The silver plated 70 A male contacts are available in 4 sizes, from 6 mm2/AWG 10 to 25 mm2/AWG 3, and have a protective insulating cap, which prevents any accidental access to the uncoupled connector during the assembly or the regular maintenance activities. Read more
